Higher Education Fit Out & Refurbishment

At ICON we understand that education spaces need to be functional, visually appealing, and durable, whilst providing a stimulating environment that inspires both your students and colleagues.

We get a kick out of designing and constructing flexible, multipurpose spaces from classrooms to quiet study zones, libraries to break out spaces, and lecture theatres to collaboration areas. Seeing our spaces used by hundreds of students every day gives us the motivation to keep innovating and improving.
We understand for many of our education based customers, your Fit Out and refurbishment projects are often over and above your already busy workload. ICON's dedicated team will work with you to evaluate your space and requirements before creating a custom journey for you and your team that focusses on transferring the burden from you, to us. 

We offer bespoke, customer-centric solutions, and will bring our extensive workplace Fit Out experience to transform your vision into reality, whether you’re looking at a new-build education project or reviving existing facilities.

We’ll be with you every step of the way from initial concepts through to design, delivery, hand over, and aftercare, project managing your education refurbishment and Fit Out on time and on budget with minimal disruption to your operations. Once the work has been completed, we’ll carry out quality checks to ensure that everything meets our exceptionally high standards.

Services We Offer

Communal spaces in Universities and Colleges are critical to supporting the social and emotional aspects of learning and peer-to-peer development. They also have the largest impact on student wellbeing. Provision of these spaces provide students with the opportunity to meet new people and momentarily escape the pressures of study.

Refurbishing an existing teaching space can not only improve satisfaction for teachers but also students. Key to learning is an environment everyone feels safe and comfortable, with our work we ensure the spaces become brighter, more usable, and welcoming. The addition of new technology can also improve learning and collaboration.

The current demands around providing healthier food options and better dining spaces, whilst catering for an increased numbers of students has changed the way dining halls and kitchens are used. At ICON we aim to provide a solution that not only is futureproofed for increased capacity but can meet the rigourus demands of daily use.

Thoughtful design and the incorporation of modern teaching aids and technology can enhance student engagement and facilitate interactive and collaborative learning.

Furniture should be ergonomic, versatile, and age-appropriate, supporting various teaching methods and student needs.

Sustainable materials, energy-efficient lighting, and eco-friendly design choices can reduce the environmental impact of an education Fit Out. Sustainability is always at the core of our process.

The timeline for an education Fit Out can vary significantly based on the scope of work and project complexity, but if you are looking to avoid term time or minimise disruption, let us know and we can discuss how best to complete the project around your schedule.

The cost of an education Fit Out depends on factors like size, location, design complexity, and the extent of customisation. Get in touch with the team for some free advice, no obligation. We are happy to help you on your journey.
